Dear Ichthyologists,
This was sent to me by Bex Seely of the Marine Biological Association. I think it is a ray scute but it was found on the shore of Llyn Cellwyn, a reservoir in Snowdonia.

The fact that it is a built reservoir makes mw wonder if this could have come up in some sort of building material. I've also known people to drop things like this for a laugh.

Looks like a Thornback Ray scute to me.
